9780304297788: War in a Stringbag

Commander Charles Lamb fought an exceptional war piloting the slow and obsolete Fairey Swordfish. Antiquated as it was, the "Stringbag" still outmaneuvered almost any other aircraft--especially with Lamb at the controls. Go with him into the thick of the action--landing on the Courageous just before she sinks; flying 29 sorties over northern Europe; attacking E-boats through the nine days of Dunkirk. Also experience the terror of being shot down...and living to soar again, defending Malta and the Mediterranean. A rare story of courage.

Review:

An epic account of a legendary aircraft and the men who flew in it...his peronsal courage, determination and resilience shine through every page and stand as an inspiration for all who serve in today's FAA * NAVY NEWS *
